1. Wynns, The Sliding, Cabernet Sauvignon, Coonawarra, South Australia 2016
Made by a brilliant woman called Sue Hodder and she says "The aim of the wine is to deliver a leading affordable Cabernet Sauvignon, showcasing exceptional varietal and regional characteristics".
What makes this wine special is the fact it is planted on a unique strip of “Terra Rossa” soil in the Coonawarra. If you rub a bit of the soil between your hands they will turn red and thay helps make this wine excellent.
Black current, cassis, cherry and slightly minty. Excellent mouthfeel, medium not too heavy.
2. Castellore Organico Organic Prosecco
A peachy, fizzy and fruity Prosecco with bright and elegant, candied apple and orange that’s only £7.99 - and organic!
3. M&S Cremant De Bordeaux Rose Brut
A sparkling rosé made in the same method as Champagne. Flavours of strawberries, brioche and a floral hint. This dry wine is great served alongside salads, chicken and party foods.
4. Sainsbury's Conegliano Prosecco
A delicate Prosecco with apricot and lemon flavours from a DOCG quality vineyard in the prized Conegliano area in North-East Italy. It makes a fantastic aperitif served with olives and antipasti.

5. Pol Roger Brut 2012 Vintage
A classic blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, sourced from 20 different Premier and Grand Cru vineyards in the Montagne de Reims and Côte des Blancs. This Champagne is aged in cellars for at least 7 years before release.
6. Yealands Reserve Sauvignon Blanc
A sustainable and environmentally friendly Sauvignon with flavours of citrus and passion fruit and a crisp, long finish.
Buy: £11.99 Waitrose / On Offer: Only £9.49 (27th March)
1, Chandon Garden Spritz
The perfect serve would be Chandon Garden Spritz poured over ice with a sprig of rosemary, and a slice of orange. For winter, I’d replace the rosemary with a cinnamon stick.
Food pairs really well with this product because of the spices. I’d suggest Thai, Italian, Japanese, BBQ or cheese.
2. Louvel Fontaine Champagne Brut
This is one of the most affordable bottles of Champagne I’ve ever come across. This wine has a beautiful yellow - gold colour and delicate fruit and brioche notes on the nose and doesn’t disappoint on the palette – it is lively with racy acidity and is clean fresh finish.
3. Graham Beck Rosé Brut
A South African rosé fizz. Easy drinking, red berries, citrus and lime. Elegant new sparkling wine to kick off the party!
Buy: £16.99 from Waitrose / On Offer: Only £10 (4th April)
4. Moncaro Verdiccihio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico 2022, Italy
Incredibly refreshing, citrus, crushed herbs and almonds. Brilliant white for a day with some sunshine on your back.
5. Les Nivieres Saumur Cabernet Franc, France
Irresistible red wine from the Loire valley which is famous for Sancerre, meaning that the cooler climate creates this a more delicate red wine, rich black currents, spice. Drink this slightly chilled (15min in the fridge) and eat with a sausage from the BBQ.
5. Nyetimber Classic Cuvée
This stunning sparkling from West Sussex is a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier with refined bubbles and a citrus and zest finish.
Buy: £39 from M&S / On Offer: Only £29 (9th April)
